After a lumpy Bay of Biscay crossing, the rest of the cruise was excellent. The ship was going into dry dock at the end of this cruise for a spruce up. We had sailed on Britannia before so we knew our way round the ship. The lifts are still a bit of a problem, mainly as at either end of the ship they are smaller and often full at busy times. Considering the wear she has had, I thought she ...

I read all the reviews before deciding on a holiday so only fair that I should leave my own objective review. This trip was our first time on Britannia and we had a fantastic trip. The food choices were really good, we ate normally in the Oriental restaurant and were very well looked after with the waiters always offering more if we wanted it or to change things if they though we weren't keen. We ...

Med cruise spoiled by Norovirus

Chose this cruise because of the ports and the time of year. First three days were excellent then the Norovirus outbreak god out of hand and pools were emptied, buffet was closed, all venues on the ship were single entry with staff enforcing the use of hand sanitisers. Loungers were put away mid afternoon to scrub the decks. Handrails and lift buttons could not be touched. Menus, condiments, etc ...

October 2018 and this was our 12th cruise with P&O. This time we boarded Britannia on Friday 12th October 2018 on a two week cruise to the Mediterranean. We stayed overnight at our preferred hotel, New Place Hotel , Shirrell Heath, Southampton where we got a taxi to the port. We always arrive early prior to our designated boarding time as we usually get on earlier. This was our 3rd trip on ...

We wanted to visit Madeira and Lisbon so we chose this canary island cruise and booked one year in advance.The sailing was smooth and the cabins were of a reasonable size.The ship was in good condition and clean.The problem was that there were too many people and this made it very difficult to get into a lift.We were on level 11 so needed the lift.This meant waiting a long time to find space in ...

After a first and very successful cruise on Ventura in 2017, my husband and i were immensely looking forward to our 2nd cruise on Britannia in October 2018. We read the reviews; just as we had for Ventura; but dismissed them as there had been bad reviews of Ventura too, but we'd not had a single issue (apart from a minor dislike of the buffet restaurant which we found ...

The food was delicious from starters to desserts. The bars and entertainment we enjoyed and they shown films too. We played bingo and on the roulette table and had a very good time doing so.The pool and ...

This was our second cruise after the Arcadia last year. This was definitely a step up in quality of food and overall wow factor of the ship. Yes there is a bit of getting used to which lifts to use to get down to your required deck but that's offset by enjoying the beautiful interior decor and ambience. We cruised to the Madeira and the Canaries. I must admit to being quite surprised as to the ...

My husband and I travelled with our 5year old son. Embarkation was very good. We got on much earlier than our allocated slot and the bags already outside our cabin. The cruise demographic was largely retirees. With just under 100 under 18s on board. This was largely fine but the ships design caused major issues. There were lots of people who needed to use the lifts due to mobility issues and the ...

The worst 2 weeks of our life, this was supposed to be our honeymoon! Where to start... Firstly we arrived in our balcony cabin to find remaining confetti from someone who must have had the room before us i imagine, no tea bags, coffee or milk available we had to wait 30 mins until someone bought us some. The first night- major design fault in balcony rooms, balcony doors did nothing but ...
